View Full Version : Can't get a breath

03-07-20, 10:09
Hi all
I'm having a bad time managing to get a deep breath over the last couple of days and it's really worrying me. It's like I can't get enough air in my lungs and then I either yawn or sigh to relieve it.
Now I'm a frequent poster on this site and have read that yawning/shortness of breath can be related to mnd and the bulbar onset so am freaking out over this. Put this together with my speech issues and I think I have it.
I saw neurologist two weeks ago and this breathing issue has happened since I saw him.
I'm getting increasingly anxious about my breathing and its getting worse.
Thanks for reading

I know it's hard to believe, but it's just your anxiety.

Hi blueiris
That's what I'm trying to tell myself, but I've read it can be related to mnd and thats worrying
I am trying to control my breathing but nothing is helping.
Thanks for replying.

I'm sorry you're having such an awful time. Keep at the breathing exercises, they can take forever to work when you're already panicked.

Feel free to drop me a message if you want to chat, okay?
